V. Example installations
There are two hard disk drives on the system running Solaris and Windows NT. FAT-16 partition, is used to exchange data between two systems. Solaris boot manager boots both systems.
Solaris and NT are installed considering performance over safety, that is, every system occupies the part of each hard disk. This way both hard disks work at the time for Solaris or NT.
Hard disks will be partitioned as follows (proportions are meaningless):
/usron HDD-2. This can improve performance, but is unsafe since Solaris will not boot with HDD-2 disconnected.
The Solaris partition on HDD-1 becomes active and Solaris boot manager will appear after reboot. To boot NT select 1, i.e. NTFS partition, in the manager.
/sharedirectory, and add the following line:
/dev/dsk/c0t1d0p2:c - /share pcfs - yes -
/etc/vfstab file to mount FAT-16 volume automatically at the
boot time (see notes on mounting FAT partitions).
If HDD-2 is an IDE drive use
c0d1p2:c, if it is slave on the
primary channel, or
c1d0p2:c if it is master on the secondary
Remarks: Linux can be added easily as a third operating system. It is enough to leave some space on HDD-1 during Solaris setup, and on extended partition on HDD-2. Then install Linux according to instructions in section 2.
